Careers Information for Parents and Carers

Parent/carer involvement and support is essential for successful careers education, positive outcomes and transitions. Parent/carers are therefore kept informed about careers events and activities through direct communication with tutors, correspondence home, parents’ evenings and the annual review (EHCP) process. 

We also encourage input and feedback from parents and careers regarding Careers Education at Uplands School and work experience, therefore, please contact our Careers Lead on the contact details below to discuss further. 

Claire Owens, Careers Lead
Telephone: 01793 493910

We also welcome parents/carers’ input into our careers programme; if you would like to come into school to talk about your job to students, for example, or are keen to be involved with Uplands School as an employer, please see the bottom of our ‘Careers Programme’ page for further details Uplands School - Careers Programme
